Yesterday morning I spent my first tea drinking time of the day sat in the french windows for an hour, doing my bit for the RSPB sats. The idea is to log the maximum number of each species you see at one time, during the course of the hour.
So my list for this year (which I’ve up-loaded to the RSPB) is
2 Robins (both feeding the fat ball feeder – a first for me)
2 Siskins (a pair)
8 Long Tailed Tits
2 Blue Tits
2 Great Tits
2 Blackbirds (a pair)
1 Blackcap (yeh – a male – still no female seen in the garden)
1 Collared Dove
The birds I didn’t get that I really wanted for the RSPB were the Greater Spotted Woodpecker, Wren and the Goldcrest. Ho hum – I know they’ve been recently, even if the RSPB don’t!
